Letter to the Editor:
St. Kateri Tekakwitha Feeding the Homeless and Poor
Posted: Wednesday, Jun 19th, 2013
Last week I wrote a letter to San Carlos Apache Tribal Council asking for their approval and help with vouchers to buy items we need to feed the homeless and hungry people here in San Carlos. The San Carlos Apache Tribal Council had a special meeting that same week on this issue. The council did approve St. Kateri Tekakwitha, Feeding the Homeless and Poor.
One particular Council member, Mitch Hoffman, spoke on our behalf. He tremendously supported the homeless, the hungry and St. Kateri Tekakwitha, whom the center is named after.
Thank you, council members and a special thanks to you, Mitch Hoffman, 7-Mile Wash councilman. Also, thank you Chairman Terry Rambler. I pray that our Apache nation will be blessed through the intercession of St. Kateri Tekakwitha.
My mourning is gone and my painful journey has finally ended. It’s been 11 years since I lost my late husband, Wilson Boni, Sr., and two sons. Now I can do what I can to help the hungry and poor in our community. That is what Christ wants us all to do — to care for one another. That’s our journey, our ticket to heaven. Like St. Kateri Tekakwitha, lily of the Mohawk nation cared for her people. She’s my special friend and my sister in Christ. Saint Kateri Tekakwitha.
St. Kateri Tekakwitha Feeding the Homeless and Poor serves homeless, poor and children every Tuesday and Thursday in front of San Carlos Library at 11 a.m. If you have any questions, come by and we will answer your questions, or just to talk about the center. You are welcome.
